You must see that Gothic interior covered with the Byzantine-Ruthenian polychromes. This the place where East and West really meet. Very spiritual and very beautiful. Worth visiting but try to plan your visit in advance - the museum has to limit the number of tourists...More

The entrance to the chapel is 10 PLN and it just isn't worth it. There is literally nothing to see there. It's important but takes like 5 minutes to look around. The rest of the castle is just a provincial museum, not even worth a...More
